Riley and Co BLOG HOP! ~ "Always Believe!"



Hi there!
 Welcome to the new stamp release Riley and Company blog hop :)  I have two things showcased for you today  - a card and a bookmark :)  This is an especially fun post as I'm using the new retro coffee girl and coordinating stamp sentiment ~ many of you probably know me well and that I'm RARELY without a cup of coffee (or a book!) :)   I'm also showcasing the Funny Bones sentiment paired with hot air balloon Riley (this lil cutie is one of my very favorites!)  


You should have arrived here from Michele's marvelous blog ~ and from here, you'll hop on over to Laurie's lovely blog!  If you've just arrived, start here :)  

So let's hop!  




First up, a card featuring the Funny Bones stamp "Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen."  That statement literally takes my breath away ~ and plan to have this stamped all over just about everything this year!  I've added the hot air balloon Riley because he makes me smile :)  Next, the papers on both the card and bookmark are a mix of Valentine papers and I chose some slightly off colors due to my love of non-traditional looks.  I gave them a slightly collage-y look (hee hee - is that a word?!) I paper-pieced the hot air balloon and baskets as I love to paper-piece.  
and I love buttons.  and ric-rac. *Bliss!*



































And that's my post  for you today :)  I appreciate you stopping by!  Here are few things to see as you continue on your hop tonight:
